本课您将学到：easy as pie（像吃派一样简单），用do强调句中的动词
You are what you eat. 你吃什么就成为什么样子营养专家经常使用这句话来倡导更好的饮食习惯。的确，入口的东西确实成为我们的一部分。但我们也可以从另一个角度来看这句话，我们所吃的反映出我们自己不论就人或文化而言。你想了解另一种文化吗？那么你应该去认识他们的食物。认识美国食物可以让我们得知美国文化的精髓。
What is American food? At first you might think the answer is easy as pie. To many people, American food means hamburgers, hot dogs, fried chicken and pizza. If you have a sweet tooth, you might even think of apple pie or chocolate chip cookies. Its true that Americans do eat those things. But are those the only kind of vittles（食物） you can find in America?
Except for Thanksgiving turkey（感恩节火鸡）, its hard to find a typically（典型的） American food. The United States is a land of immigrants（移民）. So Americans eat food from many different countries. When people move to America, they bring their cooking styles with them. Thats why you can find almost every kind of ethnic（种族的、民族的） food in America. In some cases, Americans have adopted（外来的） foods from other countries as favorites. Americans love Italian pizza, Mexican tacos and Chinese egg rolls. But the American version（版本） doesnt taste quite like the original（最初的）!

The Way to Keep Healthy
It's important for us to be healthy all our life. We can't study or work well without healthy body.
There're many ways to keep healthy. First of all, we should keep taking exercises every day. We can walk to school instead of taking a bus. After school, we can spend an hour playing ball games. If we live in a high-rise, we can walk upstairs or downstairs. Second, we should have a balanced diet. Finally, we must remember: "Early to bed, early to rise is the way to keep healthy, wealthy and wise."
cockroaches are the insects that frighten me the most. i wasn＇t afraid of them before, but now i can＇t stand them. it started when i was sleeping one day and smelled a disgusting odor.
i discovered a dead cockroach under my body and its eggs on my pillow! i almost died! i jumped off my bed at once and took a bath quickly. the experience made me hate cockroaches. what i find most disgusting is when i see a cockroach fly around the room.
i＇m always afraid that they m1ght land on me. hearing the sound of its wings makes me nervous and afraid.
cockroaches pose a threat to our daily lives. a dirty environment will attract many cockroaches and this may threaten our health. they pollute food and water and bring many illnesses, such as dysentery and skin diseases.
i can＇t help shivering at the sight of them.

Recently, TV dating shows produced by some of China's provincial satellite TV stations have become very popular. With the success of Jiangsu Satellite TV's "If You Are the One", some other TV stations have been making their own dating programs. These programs have generated debate among the viewers.
Some audiences think that these programs may have a bad effect on young people. They are worried about the money worship showed by a few female participants. Watched by millions, one female participant from Beijing once rejected a suitor by saying that she would rather cry in a BMW than smile on a bicycle. Some other audiences support these programs. They hold that no TV shows can fully reflect social reality and that the money worship of a few participants does not represent mainstream Chinese society. People daring to express their love values in public should be considered as social progress.
In my opinion, the popularity of the TV dating programs can be employed as an opportunity to advocate positive values of love and marriage. After all, most people disapprove of the idea of money worship. (184 words)
